    Newbie need help with NTFS security

    I'm an newbie IT person handling a small business (14 users) network. They have a file server running Windows Server 2019 Essentials - as far as i was informed to avoid hitting the 20 max allowed connections - as part of a workgroup (no domain) that runs their HR System. They have all files (programs and files) in a public directory with no security at all (???).

    What I want to do is create a directory out of the public area and allow the HR program to run (execute, update, create and delete files) while preventing the users to move or delete files by themselves. How should I configure the security for this directory to have it done? All workstations are using Win10 Pro.

    Sorry, newbie here still trying to understand how rights work and are related. Read a lot but can't find how to achieve what I'm looking for.

    Thanks for any help.

    Wekcome to the forum. Soall these users are just in a workgroup and the share is on a normal pc. Can the pc be accessed from the domain or is it a seperate network? There are 2 sets of permissions share and ntfs so you can change both.

    Its vital you first add users before you deny or you can be locked out. Its a lot simpler if the share is on the DC put simply you create a group HR and add users of HR thn you can create the share for the group only the same goes for NTFS so HR has full control and you must be on permissions or you wont be able to see it. The other problem is backup that needs to be able to have full access or you wont get any backups.

    Set the share first and test if anyone else can get to it dont do ntfs untill you have that bit right
